This post is a long time coming seeing as I was in Madrid last October, whoops! That’s what buying and renovating a house will do to you.

Madrid is a lovely city and you’ll have a great time there. You’ll also get loads of yum GF food you lucky duck.

As I’ve posted before, Spain do gluten free very well and most places are knowledgeable even if there is nothing specifically GF noted on the menu.

Here are some of the places  I ate while in Madrid that I would recommend:

Tapas: We visited La Concha Taberna which has a GF tapas menu. It’s right in the middle of everything in La Latina

Typical Spanish food: Look no further than El Arrozal . It was really quiet when we were there but the food was good and GF is noted on the menu. Situated in Playa Mayor.

Italian: Yes, I know but for coeliacs sometimes you just need to go somewhere you know you can eat!! Danicola is super handy, just off Gran Via.

CAKE: You have to visit Celicioso just off Gran Via. Everything in this bakery is gluten free. It’s most sweets but they do some bread you can buy and take away. Get in for some coffee and cake.

Guilty pleasure: A GF Big Mac in McDonalds, it has to be done.
